    I have a cool poll to participate in /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'm gonna look at getting something that gets MPG to take to college... that'll mean leaving my poor Xploder here in Cheyenne, but it'll also mean not spending all my cash on gas /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Anyway, I'm just curious about some of y'all's opinions!!!!

    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="http://coloradok5.com/forums/dopoll.php"><INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="pollname" VALUE="1064862029Capman2k">


    What should Da Caparoonie drive to school next fizzall?
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="1" />86ish Toyota pickup with tha 4x4 and stuff
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="2" />SUBARUUUUU with a kickazzzz lift kit
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="3" />Ricemobile Honda
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="4" />Some sort of mid-size sedan (family man Carl?)
    <input type="radio" name="option" value="5" />Carl should quit being a wuss and ride his bike across town uphill both ways in a blizzard
    <INPUT TYPE=Submit NAME=Submit VALUE="Submit vote" class="buttons"></form>

    This poll doesn't even matter, I think I'm gonna try and get either a Subaru or one of those little 4cyl Toyota pickups /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just found a freaking awesome Subaru... it's a shame I don't have any money for it, I'm drooling looking at the pics /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    here's some of the mods:

    1982 4WD GL Wagon
    182k on odometer
    142k on hydraulic lifter motor from '84 2wd coupe
    160k on 4 speed D/R tranny w/9" clutch from '83 wagon
    weber 32/36 (bought new)
    3" BYB body lift (full 3" at the radius rod blocks also)
    225/70R14 Dayton Timberline AT tires on 14" pug steels (4) with a stock subaru size spare.
    100 Watt 6" round lights on top
    Roof Rack
    XT-6 alternator
    power steering
    power windows
    AC is there, but needs a compressor (I will provide one)
    custom front bumper with 2" reciever.
    Modified Steely Del Brushguard with amber fogs
    2" reciever hitch in rear. very strong. have used it to tow other soobs.
    Gray interior, light brown rear seat,
    gray '90 Legacy drivers seat,
    gray Turbo GL-10 front passenger seat (side bolsters like RX seats)
    GL-10 Interior cloth upper door panels
    stock AM/FM Cassette (no idea if the cassette player works)
    '84 vented front disc brakes
    '87 turbo GL-10 rear disc brakes
    Centerlamp is there, but needs wiring added due to custom headlight wiring harness/switch.
    2002: new front struts, front wheel bearings.
    2003: new KYB rear shocks, new radiator.
    just put in a different Disty today, as the vac advance was failing.

    Spare doors (all 4! in silver)
    Spare tail lights, and probably some other spare parts

    Problems:
    windshield is cracked
    silver fender has seen better days.
    might be needing brakes
